I can make an animation for you since the program you're using doesn't seem that powerful (I use After Effects) in a design you'd like. Even a countdown intro, but if you don't want it then that's alright with me.
I was referring to your first paragraph about modding when I said time consuming.
Wow, everyday, I'm becoming more and more impressed on how dedicated you are to this project.
Do you remember the signatures I made a long time ago and you posted how bad it was? Yep, I'm still using the same old Microsoft PowerPoint. For the video in the menu screen, (vanilla shows the M1 Abrams driving and the Apache flying with some other vids of the scenery running a the same time) I envisioned 9 congruent boxes (3x3) with the middle saying THE W:AB MOVIE MOD V1.0 in some cool font. The other 8 are running W:AB movies that are made by players. The one right now has vids from the Cinematic Competition some time ago. After very little research, I found that PowerPoint is the only free program that could run multiple videos at the same time, so I tried doing that. Unfortunately, my weak laptop handles it weirdly and 2 random videos are fine, 3 are lagging, and 3 are totally black or have video issues (the vids that do this switch every time). If you could think of a cool video that would run for a long time on the menu, that's neat, but not mandatory. The greatest contribution you could make movie-wise is the loading movie, which currently starts at a random point in the video and loops continuously (automatically, it's only like a 2 min video). I was thinking of using something like Prezi, where it zooms to different screens and each of them has a cool picture of the movie mod and a tip about how to use it. I bet you could do that stuff easily seeing the awesome logo vid you made for yourself. If you want to you could also re-do the intro vid, but only remake it to make the quality better, not the content or music. Do you have to do all of this stuff? No. Do you have to do any of this stuff? No. Already I am touched by your generosity of even responding to this thread. (I would have been very upset if it was completely empty of replies.) If you end up even making a loading video (and we successfully get it in the mod) I will be even more thankful and you are sure to earn a place in the credits (maybe even highlighted and caps-ed for effect)
The video replacing the Focus logo will surly be this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ELCO3ELXnJ8
This is the SMPTE Universal Leader I was talking about.
Meanwhile, Naizarak told me how to do some more stuff on the camera mod, but not if he wants to do it himself. (I'm assuming not, but let's wait and see.)
I just came back from school, and now I have another thing to do until 10, so I have not worked on searching for the list of PACT units yet. That will have to wait some days unfortunately.
Also, I found a web tool that could maybe come in handy: http://tinyurl.com/
